"Just the Ticket is an 8mm entry from England by the Altrinecham Cine Club.

A good trick if you can get away with it. But then, you may have to face the consequences as the film reveals. It's in color, all 17 minutes of it, and is especially recommended for wives of movie makers. Winner of the Best Club Film Award," PSA Journal, Mar. 1970, 43.
